BRUSSELS, Jan. 24. (New York World

loand the grand marahal had the honor to
Inrtta him to the palace aa the guest of
King Leopold at 12:30 p. m. At the foot
waa the legend "Ed redlngote deull" (In
frock coat, mourning). On alighting at the
palace the correspondent was ushered
along a vestibule Into the cloak room.
Court etiquette requires that you leave
your overcoat and umbrella behind you, but
retain your bat in your hand. Paaalng

' Hardly had we time to exchange , greet
ings when the announcement was made
from the opposite end of tho room, "Le

matically, and the king entered with hla
niece, the Princess Albert Belgium's fu
ture queen on his arm, followed by Prince
Albert with the Princess Clementine, the
king's only unmarried daughter, and their
ladles-ln-waltlng. We ranged ourselves
along the side of the room and his
majesty advanced, saying a few words to
each guest. t
Again the doors opened, as if automat
ically, and luncheon was announced. The
king took his niece upon his arm and
Prince Albert escorted Princess Clementine.
Maids of honor, with the court officials
nd the rest of us, straggled tn. The cor

Perhapa there are finer collections of

marshal, who sat facing the king. The
king bad on his light the Princess Albert
and oa his left his daughter.
The conversation was carried on between
those who sat together and not across the
table, which was wideband laden with
decorations. Aa the banquet proceeded,
ceremony unbent, and there waa an absence
of restraint which bespoke the family
nature of the gathering.
The correspondent Intercepted, quit ac
cidentally, a wink between the prlnceaa
and her cousin.
Course succeeded course. First a silver
plat and then a gold plate, then vice

pressly to note the first appesrance of an
American ambassador at one of the cere
monious court functions eo dreaded by
diplomats who are not familiar with them.
Never before did the correspondent see
a new diplomat carry himself with as much
tact and "savolr falre" as did Bellamy
Btorer. He had presented his credentials
before the new German ambassador, after
all the maneuvering to prevent It, and so
bad precedence over Count Wedel.
As he walked in the wake of the Im

lighted, tapestried hall where the em
peror's guests were already assembled, his
striking figure was noticed by all present.
In height he towered above all the other
diplomats and his finely cut features stood

Mrs. Btorer took her turn with the other
wives of ambassadors to sit on the central

MUNICH. Bavaria, Jan. 24. (New Tork

recent doings at court of Prince Leopold,
the aged regent of Bavaria, are causing
widespread comment, aa they show a de

play of the exotic and eccentric which has
tended recent Bavarian monarchs In virtual
lunatic asylums. The prince regent's
Idiosyncrasy Is in the direction of the most
elaborate and fantastic table decorations
and of dishes In extraordinary forms. At
the latest court ball supper there was so
dazzling an array of artistic conceits that
the guests were with difficulty induced to
Huge lobsters were set in mayonnaise,
fashioned in models of Moorish buildings,

coated with a pearly paste, with the arms
and devices of the roysl house, with all
their numerous quarteringa done In jelly
of absolutely correct heraldic colors. The
fish were In Intricate Sevra work designs,
copied from works of the most famous mas

faaUoned to resemble the Bavarian- publls
edifices. Numerous wild boar heads
lavishly ornamented and quarters of deer
on vast silver dishes, surrounded by osk
leaves and a complete representation of a

served. The Ices were laid flat on silver
dishes and srranged to make a portrait of
the prince regent.

DEVELOPMENT OF CULTURES

Health Commissioner Ralph has found
some difficulty In establishing the newly
adopted plan for tha development bf cul

the principal trouble having been due to
failure on the part of the physicians of
the city to follow directions tn the use ot
the culture tubes provided by the health
department. Speaking of Ihia matter yea-

seeking some means to prevent that sort
of thing. There are some other forms of
sore throat that so closely resemble diph

arrangements for the development of cul

We have distributed culture tubes at drag
stores throughout the city snd with these
tubes go plainly printed Instructions ot ths
most explicit kind to the effect that ths
tubes when used are to be returned to this

operate with us Intelligently in this work
it would prove of grrat benefit to the city,
but so far those who hsve secured tubes
have acted independently and lnstesd ot
returning, the tubes to us hsve tried to de
velop the cultures themselves and made
no report to our department. I nave now
Issued still further instructions to ( the
doctors and hope they will follow them."

LINCOLN, Jan. 24. (Special ) The Im
pending conflict between the Bell Tele
phone company and the independent com
panies of the state assumed tangible form
today by the simultaneous Introduction in
both house and senate of a bill allowing
competitive telephone linea in the cltlea of
Omaha and Lincoln. In the senate the bill
was Introduced by Reynolds of Dodge, in
the house by Deles Dernier of Cass. Key
nolda is chairman of the senate committee
on telegraph, telephone and electric com
panies snd a stockholder In sn Independ
ent telephone company, and Deles Dernier
Is a member of the bouse committee and a
strong advocate of the independent Inter
While these measures provide merely for
the establishment of toll stations, with all
necessary lines, etc., they sre regarded as
the opening wedge for further legislation.
The next step. It Is believed, will be a bill
requesting the right of establishing central
exchanges, providing, of course, that the
initial measure is favorably acted on.
Some Interesting developments are looked
for along hls line. It certainly Is evident
that the Independent telephone companies
of Nebraska have come down to this ses
sion of the legislature well organised and
determined to break down the barriers
which the city councils of Omaha and Lin
coln have maintained against them. They
have come to meet a mighty foe. however.
The Bell people are ss thoroughly organ
lied. They sre In 'possession of ths head
quarters and hav one of the strongest lob
bies In the capital city. They are prepared
to give their opponents a stiff fight.
Rivalry Shows Is Karly.
The bitter rlvslry between these fac
tions became evident at the outset ef this
session. In the makeup ot the bouse and
senate committees each side dealt some
fieroe blows and laid the foundation for
the subsequent battle, la the senste th
Independents gained th chairmanship ot
the committee by getting Reynolds Into that
position, and It was about an even toss on
the remainder of the committee. The house
chairmanship, however, went to Burgess
ot Lancaster, a atrong Bell man. Moreover,
Morsman of Douglas wss placed on tblt
committee snd Mr. Morsman's father is
general secretary for the Bell company.
Even with the other six members evenly
divided between the two factions, the 'Bell
people would have the upper band of ths
committee In the house. ,
Aa to the sentimeLt in the hous and
senate, it would be a decidedly difficult, if
not Impossible, matter to determine Juat
at this stage. The natural Inference with
respect to the house, owing to its populsr
caste, would be that the Independent peo
ple would tare well there.
Here Is a copy of the bills Introduced to
day, both of which contain repealing and

As wss stated In Th Bee thla morning,
th joint revenue committee la divided en
j the point of whether it shall proceed to
aoctor me ins or me state ey drafting an
I entirely new and general revenue bill or
i simply by tacking on a few amendments
! to ths old law. Ths Istter remedy Is whst
! the railroads and other corporations want.
The committee has appointed a subcom
mittee, ss wss stated In The Bee, to de
cide which course shsll be pursued. Ths
committee will report Tuesday and great
anxiety Is felt over Its action. Th over-,
whelming sentiment ot house sod senate
jointly, is for general revenue revision,
for it is understood that by this meana th
Interests of the masses will be better sub

Senator Hall of Douglas this morning
took the first steps toward Insuring the
calling of a constitutional convention to
amend ths constitution by the introduc
tion of a Joint resolution calling on the
people ot th stat to vot at tb next gen
eral election on tb proposition of calling
this convention. A desdlock on this ques
tion exists and this step on ths part ot the
Omaha senator Is the result of this situ
ation. Many thousands of dollars have
been expended by the slats to secure the
adoption of amendments recognised as nec
essary because of the failure of the, elec-
j tors to settle the question at the 'polls.
j There is a rumor that certain timid ele-
ments will oppose the resolution because
of their fear of the part the railroads msy
play In endeavoring to kill any such movs.
For some reason Currle of Dawes prefers
not to discuss his bill Introduced in the
house the other day aud at once inter
preted as a subtle scheme at heading off
ths bill to let Omaha's tsx commissioner
levy a direct tax on the railroad property
within the corporate limits instesd of tak
ing the figures returned by the State Board
ot Equalization. Mr. Currle waa asked by
Omaha reporters for an explanation of the
purpose of his bill, which is couched in
such subtle language, sod merely said:
"I bavs nothing to say about ths bill at
all. I ll talk about It when ths ttmo
comes, but not now."

has th effect of confirming ths belief that
